Nvidia Driver Issue?

Recommended Posts

I installed the new EVGA GTX 970 FTX+ last night and installed the newest driver: 347.25

 

I removed the old driver prior to the swap correctly as I always do.

 

The issue is after loading up an FSX flight, the screen goes black after a minute or so. I did some Googling and it appears to be a driver issue? The screen goes black but FSX is functioning as normal. I get the mouse cursor only. I have tried windowed mode and its the same thing. The only way out of FSX at this point is the do a program shut down from the TM.

 

For those of you that are running a GTX 900 series gpu: What forceware drivers are you using and is there something I am missing here? Is there any driver that is known to work well over another?

 

Running FSX

Win 7 SP1

 

Thanks......

Use DDU to uninstall the driver. It gets rid of any and all display driver remnants. Then reinstall. http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

Just a follow up note:

 

It was not the driver it was EVGA's Precision X 16 software. Evidently it does not get along with FSX too well.

also why did you manually uninstall the driver. it should automatically uninstall it for you.
